The North Carolina Farmworker Health Program (NCFHP) is excited to announce our Request for Applications (RFA) to help community organizations increase access to primary, preventive and behavioral health services for migrant and seasonal farmworkers and their families in North Carolina.
NCFHP funding is meant to supplement existing resources in communities and reduce barriers to care so that farmworkers and their family members have equitable access to comprehensive and continuous health care services. NCFHP supports the development of sustainable services for farmworkers by encouraging local partnerships and collaborations to include farmworkers in services that are available for the general community.
Things to keep in mind:
- This year, the project period will be a minimum of one year (April 1, 2022, to March 31, 2023) and strong proposals may be approved for a project period of up to three years (April 1, 2022, through March 31, 2025).
- There are four tracks for this funding opportunity, and applicants will choose under which track to apply for funding.
- Track I applicants do not need to apply for Tracks II, III or IV to request funds for their enabling, behavioral health services or dental services.
- Tracks II-IV are specifically for applicants proposing to support services at multiple or all NCFHP-funded service delivery sites.
- American Rescue Plan Act funding is available for Track I and II applicants for COVID-19 related expenses including staff, supplies, and small equipment for April 1, 2022 to March 31, 2023. If requesting funds for COVID-19 related services, please fill in the COVID-19 budget tab. Do not include COVID-19 staff or other COVID-19 related expenses in the Summary or Personnel tabs of the Budget Template.
- All awards, especially those beyond the first year, will depend on the availability of funds.
- Please review the official RFA Guidance to confirm eligibility based on county, agency type and funding need.
